's a surprise to me. when pope john pal pope john paul iiwas was ailing they said it was possible for a pope to resign, but i didn't expect it. i think the timing was a surprise if nothing else. >> john: indeed, we heard of his schedule of travel and meetings has not been altered and it has caught even his closest associates by surprise. he referred to the sexual scandals as fifth in the church and that's that's a filth that cost the church. do you think that has anything to do with his resigning? >> that is possible. the number of children and families that have been devastated by it is horrific. we can't really put a price tag on that. i think maybe that weighed on the pope to some extent. the fact that atoning for that sin has been something that the church has not effectively done, the leadership has not effectively done, and we need to do more. >> john: to say nothing of the amount of lay people and catholic who is were driven away from the church in disgust of how it was handled all those years. >> absolutely. the fact that it was hidden, and that perpetrators were just moved around ha
done right behind the president by john boehner threw mime. if you count boehner rubio rand paul along with all the g.o.p. congressmen who refused to applaud voting rights, equal pay for women or plans to make. harder for lunatics to shoot lots of people. that's four rebuttals. better yet have the g.o.p. rebuttal then have a liberal rebuttal like bernie saunders and then a far right wing rebuttal and then far left wing rebuttal, and then we could have mass rebuttals and flip over to letterman. >> john: tweet of the daytime. miles also known as fake republican pointed out one draw back for minimum wage increase. he tweeted us if walmart employees get races to $9 an hour then they might be able to afford the products they sell. the horror. cheer up. if a small struggling business is trying to make ends meet bike walmart is forced to pay their employees minimum wage. they jack up their prices. it's growth. karl rove says so. now after president obama's state of the union address last night republicans were thirsty for rebuttal, and their savior as "time" magazine put it was a guy who not
's super pac focused on the halverson rating received from nra. now for much more on in, i'm joined by john rosenthal and paul blumenthal. thank you for joining us. between the emotional hearings in d.c. the money behind the gun control cause and new poll numbers showing despite what congress might end up doing the support for gun control has been growing. is this the most hopeful you've been. >> john: if the public and media make gun violence prevention an ongoing issue of importance and ultimately a voting issue during the elections coming up, i think we may make progress but remember we've got a long way to go. there is no background check requirement on gun sales. to listen to a dad of a seven-year-old killed at newtown, one of 86 americans who had bury their kids today and every day. meanwhile congress says fiscal cliff and debt cerealing are more important than taking a vote on gun violence prevention. the hast time i checked neither of those economic issues resulted in 86 american dead a day. we need a limit on magazine clips. when i get a duck hunting license i have to restrict my
the sequester. >> john: but who passed it, paul? senate majority leader harry reid kind of knows the answer to that one. >> 174 republican house members voted for this. 28 republican senators voted for this. this is not the president's sequester. >> john: you killed filibuster reform but that's another argument. mr. obama's bill. though a gang of eight in the senate is working on immigration, president obama has said he will step in if the evident fails. while some republicans accuse the president of failing to lead, a leaked white house proposal on immigration had other republicans calling for mr. obama to stay out. republican senator marco rubio insisted that "if actually proposed the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress." a bill that he pretty much agrees with all of the contents therein and congressman ryan, like the speaker of the house saw more machiavellian mischief from the white house. >> the president on most of these issues and this one now like the others, seems to be looking for a partisan advantage and not bringing the parties together. >> john: loyal oppositi
. there are two different flavors on the spectrum of vanilla. >> john: it was the paul family that was outraged because of the republican spending and now it's turned to this. and you have to give bernie saunders a few minutes. we only have a minute left. what is one thing that president obama won't discuss tonight that you really wish he would? sam, i'll start with you. >> i would like to see the president say let's get rid of the cap on social security and end this debate right now. let's raise social security benefits because we have a lot of seniors who are retiring with destroyed 401ks and to the extent that we have social security, this is it. that it need to be bigger. we don't have tucks with index type of inflation. but we need to expand with the need that seniors have. >> john: if they get more they'll spend more and it will circulate in the economy. >> indeed. >> john: alexis. >> i would like to see the president affirm the pain that young people are going through in urban areas right now. >> john: alexis mcgill johnson, executive director of american values institute, and sam seder
an crucial moment in that wing of the republican party asserting itself. >> john: you mentioned the paul-ite wing. we can assume that boehner is the sane one checking in with the president and the crazy wing of his party. but in that sound bite by senator rand paul, we just heard that he wants more cuts in the budget. how does that square with boehner saying they want more cuts when it will cost thousands of jobs. >> i don't really understand boehner saying that. in the wall street journey. it would be in his interest to play down the severity of these cuts. that's what he should be doing. >> john: but isn't he just--if this goes over the cliff the public will blame the president. so logic in facts and history don't matter, does it? >> i guess they don't matter. if this goes on for a long time, and if the economic consequences are severe, then it may reach a point where people actually do blame the president. but i don't know. i think it's a long way away. it's very hypothetical. if i were a republican i would be really, really worried this week. you know, i just don't see how your avera
to be running from. >> john: it seems you speak for the majority of the according to this pew paul, 83% of americans support background checks. 53% support a ban on assault-style weapons. that includes sylvester stallone. is there a sense newtown will change things? or weak legislation will pass and it won't be a serious issue until the next five or six shootings? >> as long as the american people maintain their engagement and make sure their voices are being heard directly to the members of congress, we'll see substantive change. i think we've gone a long way as a country to talk about no longer in vague terms of gun control or supporting the second amendment, things i don't quite understand but talking about the specifics like background checks and clip sizes those are real policies that when you break it down specifically, the vast majority of us support that. >> john: you would think the late president reagan's assault for the ban in 1994 would have a bit more sway among conservative voters. maybe it will. vice president biden is saying america is ready for change but senator john
